Officer found gun part and ammunition in Antonio Callaway’s car

AP

Having already used the trustworthy “it’s not my weed” defense, Browns wide receiver Antonio Callaway is going to have to find someone to blame for the gun parts cops found in his car.

According to dash cam video of his arrest obtained by TMZ, officers who smelled marijuana in his car searched and found a gun part and ammunition as well as a small amount of weed. The officer ordered Callaway to put his hands in the air and stay put, but later in the stop recognized him as a football player and said he looked forward to watching him play. Callaway told the officer his gun was in Florida.

Callaway also told the officer the marijuana was not his, and must have been there before the car was shipped to him.

According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the rookie wide receiver will make the trip to New York for tomorrow’s game against the Giants.

Callaway was suspended last year at Florida, and drew scrutiny (and torpedoed his draft stock) with a dilute sample test result (which counts as a positive) at the Scouting Combine.

The fourth-round draft pick was just promoted to the starting lineup, after Corey Coleman was traded to the Bills.

  1. The stoners tell us that weed is not addictive and yet these guys can’t even give it up for a few years to earn millions of dollars…..

  2. Why even report on the “gun part”? Pretty sure it’s perfectly legal to have a gun part.

  3. Yeah I think you need to have the gun as a whole for it to be considered a weapon, even in NY where we have like the most strict gun laws a non fire-able pistol creates legal challenges as far as charging someone with possession of a weapon. I don’t think the gun parts is as much as a problem as the driving while suspended and the “small quantity” of marijuana, which I’m guessing was prob a blunt he dropped while he was riding around high with no licence and a full clip….

    Since when is possession of a gun *Part* a crime?

    —————————-

    It’s not, but why would a college graduate at a football camp feel a need to be carrying around gun “parts”.

    Isn’t that what gang members do, when they sell off pieces of guns on the black market?

    The better questions are those, not if it’s legal or not. I think the Browns have the right to know, likely because all NFL franchises have rules, like no guns allowed on the premises, you know ,because it’s kinda creepy?

  5. The only part of any gun that is controlled by law is the piece that has the serial number. So he could have had the barrel for an AR-15 and that is perfectly legal.

    Yes the lower receiver is the controlled part of a firearm. My guess is he had a clip.

  7. A gun part should be considered part of a potential violation. There have been people charged w/ simply having handcuffs and duct tape in their car. I mean, if the guy had just a fuse but no bomb, why do you have a fuse? for a freaking bomb, that’s why.

  8. Gun part & Ammo??? I guess I’m going to need clean my car out of potential contraband. Anyone here know if napkins are ok???

  9. Ok so what’s the issue with having gun parts and ammo? I imagine that after seeing the gun parts and ammunition they thoroughly searched his car. Hence no gun equals no crime, so what’s the point to make the kid look worse than he already does.

  10. It was a backstrap, from what I read earlier — it’s a little piece of plastic that just makes the grip more comfortable for people depending on the size of their hands. You get a few of them when you buy a Glock.

    Weed is as addictive to people as fast food…Some people can handle eating it from time to time and others become obese…I guess we should ban McDonalds too right?

  12. Dump him now, dont wait, you already made those mistakes multiple times. Stop being the Browns.

    A college graduate? Come on dude, he was an athlete at Florida, he should never even been admitted to any college

  14. what’s with these punk players these days?, their 2 prized possessions seem to be their guns and their phones instead of their playbooks and their brains.

  15. the only crime he’s even being charged with is the suspended license. slap on the wirst folks. nothing to see here. fake news!

  16. For those judging the kid without all the facts the tape of the stop is now public and please watch it. Even the cops on camera being recorded say that they believe his story as he didn’t seem high and let him go with a slap on the wrist. Calloway was so concerned about getting in trouble with the team that he VOLUNTEERED TO BE DRUG TESTED which the cop telling him it wasn’t needed because they know the NFL drug tests him regularly.

    Not telling the team is his only real wrongdoing here. These multiple articles are literally about a 4 minute conversation with a cop at what appears to be a DUI checkpoint where they spend most of that 4 minutes talking about how the license suspension is the only thing they can bust him for that people are making out to be the biggest drug bust since Tony Montana.

  17. Amazing how people love to demonize guns and gun owners, even it’s just ‘parts’. Any cop that’s scared of seeming bullets needs to read the constitution. Nothing illegal if he had 50 guns in the car. Stop demonizing inanimate objects.

    Got a T-Shirt you’d love. It says “If guns kill people, I guess pencils misspell words, cars drive drunk and spoons make people fat”. I saw it and had to have one.

  19. This guy is going to be fun to watch this season. I’m talking about off the field, not on it.
